In Leatherheads George had the leading role as well as directing.
I enjoyed that film very much but apparently some George Clooney fans on this forum didn't like it.

Hi, Macs. Yep, GC was the lead in 'Leatherheads', and of course a fairly large part in Ides as well(!).

Wonderful factual book, isn't?

I'm going to give some guesses on the casting, so help me out......

George Stout - Our Hero

James Rorimer - Daniel Craig

Rose Valland - Cate Blanchett

John Goodman - Reichsmarshall Goring maybe?

Hugh Bonneville - Major Balfour?

Jean Dujardin - Jacques Jaujard

Not sure about others yet. Have a feeling there'll be more casting announcements shortly. Ten leading characters in all - wondering about Daniel Radcliffe, Corey Montieth. Any thoughts?

I thought it was well done Joanna and I laughed myself silly with some of the "bits" he put in ...especially that fight...that was a riot! Not for everyone, I guess, since it was definitely "dated" and certainly geared a bit toward slapstick comedy, which not everyone appreciates.

I like the sound of this one, can't wait until they start filming! It has been a bit weird going a year without George (onscreen).

As far as Leatherheads, I enjoyed it, as I wanted him and Renee to do a movie together and was thrilled when I heard she was going to co-star with him. The problem I had with the movie though, is there wasn't enough of him and Renee together onscreen, considering it was supposed to be a romantic comedy too.

I had really high hopes for Leatherheads, and enjoyed a lot of the one liners in it. I'm not a huge Renee fan, and I think George went a little too 'muggy' with some of the slapstick, so it's not one of my favorites. I'm really looking forward to Monuments and Gravity!

Not a fan of slapstick so have to admit I didn't like Leatherheads much. But I watched it like a good little fan. Can't wait for Monuments. Got the book recently and it's great. Gravity, I'm not sure of. But will give it a chance! Just want to see him on some big screen, or little, sooner than later.

This should be a nice reunion:


Matt Damon Joins Monumental Cast Of George Clooney’s Next Film

EXCLUSIVE: Matt Damon is negotiating to join The Monuments Men, the period drama that George Clooney will direct in January in Europe as a co-production between Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox. Damon joins what continues to be shaping up as an amazing cast. Besides Damon and Clooney, the film will star Skyfall‘s Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, The Artist’s Jean Dujardin, Argo‘s John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. Clooney and Damon did the Ocean’s Eleven movies together and Syriana.

The drama, which was scripted by Clooney and partner Grant Heslov, confronts the final chapter of Germany’s rule, which came down to the absolute destruction of everything that makes a culture keep its standing, including the lives that are lost and the sacrifices that are made. All of this is in danger of being lost forever as Hitler and the Nazis try to cover the tracks of a murderous regime. A crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art that were stolen by Nazis before they are destroyed.

Heslov is producing through their Smokehouse banner. Alexandre Desplat is doing the score, and the crew is the same as from the Ben Affleck-directed Argo, which Clooney and Heslov produced and Desplat scored. Damon will next be seen in the Oscar-bait Gus Van Sant-directed Promised Land, which Damon and co-star John Krasinski wrote together, and which Focus Features releases wide January 4 after an Oscar qualifying run later this year. Damon is repped by WME.

Matt Damon Jokes About Being Directed By George Clooney: ‘It’s Not Going To Be Any Fun At All’

First Published: December 5, 2012

NEW YORK, N.Y. --

Matt Damon will fall under the direction of George Clooney in the upcoming World War II film, “The Monuments Men,” but the actor isn’t sure about working with his fellow thespian.

“It’s not going to be any fun at all,” Matt joked with Access Hollywood, at Tuesday night’s “Promised Land” premiere in New York City, referring to the news that George will be directing him in his next movie.

“No, I’m obviously really excited,” Matt continued. “It’s a really terrific project and so I’m obviously looking forward to it.”

The actor heads into the thriller having just completed – and last night premiered — his newest box office offering – “Promised Land,” with John Krasinski, which opens January 4, 2013 in theaters.

Matt and John wrote the film about Steve, a gas executive, who heads to his old home town to buy up the rights to the underground gas, just as Dustin (John) kicks off an environmental campaign to stop it.

Writing with someone other than his “Good Will Hunting” script co-writer, Ben Affleck, actually wasn’t that hard. Matt said he and John were able to find an honesty with each other while penning the script.

“You have to have a real shorthand with somebody you write with. You have to not be afraid to throw ideas out there and you have to not be afraid to be wrong. And if you can kind of lose all the diplomacy — which is really kind of a waste of time — and just be able to be brutally [honest] with one and other, you can get to the answer a lot quicker,” Matt said. “There’s a lot of humor involved and a lot of laughter and we just — the script just kept getting better and better and it really did remind me of writing with Ben.”

Matt calls finding that magic again in the “Promised Land” writing experience,luck.

“I’ve been so lucky. I’ve had two of the best ones I could have ever asked for in two script attempts, so that’s pretty great,” he said.

It certainly is! Can imagine script writing with the map on the wall full of post-its.............

And the book follows all these threads - you really have to concentrate. But honestly the map helps.

George Clooney, the Hall-of fright Potsdam

That George Clooney wants (51) shoot his new film in Berlin and Brandenburg, has long been no secret. From its set-visits the Hollywood star always makes a secret. That had to Potsdam Mayor Jann Jakobs (59, SPD) experienced firsthand.

Clooney visited in late October of Jacob 'headquarters, the New Town Hall in Potsdam Friedrich-Ebert-Strasse, a potential location for his movie "The Monuments Men". But landlord Jacob found out after, as Clooney had long abgedüst again!

Here, the Hollywood star was during the visit "very nice and friendly," as Sigrid Sommer, head of the city marketing the "Potsdamer Latest News" told. Clooney was interested in the library administration and some hallways. And Sigrid Sommer was the first did not believe it.

They had just come back from holiday, as Clooney heralded. "I have not only taken seriously," she said. "Then I said, 'Yeah, okay. And what do we do now? "Remain best loose. Clooney, who came in jeans and vorbeigeschlufft Sweaterjacke is always always under time pressure. Like him, the Potsdam office building has fallen, he has not betrayed by the way. SKA

Interesting article about costumes:

Scottish vintage clothing company to dress Hollywood stars for World War II blockbuster

By CRAIG BROWN
Published on Monday 31 December 2012 00:00

A SMALL Scottish vintage clothing manufacturer is set to dress some of Hollywood’s hottest stars for a new Second World War blockbuster.

Galashiels-based clothing designer Aero Leather has been commissioned to come up with period jackets for Hollywood A-lister George Clooney for the film The Monuments Men.

“It’s set in the 1940s, and they want us to recreate the jacket that the main character will be wearing,” said company founder Ken Calder. “We were approached by their costume department to do it.”

Mr Calder said that filmmakers had a habit of altering the original designs of period jackets for fashion’s sake, but that on this occasion they had wanted something faithful to the period.


He said: “They didn’t want to mess with the styling, which is often the problem – for instance, like the designs in The Aviator and Memphis Belle – and the jacket turns out nothing like it was meant to, and it just looks a fiasco.

“On this occasion though, they wanted to keep it faithful, so this is perfect for what we do.”

Mr Calder said that it was also likely the company would be producing a similar piece for Clooney’s co-star Daniel Craig, although that deal was yet to be finalised.

Prototypes of the A-2 flight jacket will be made up before the screen jackets are produced – though it is unlikely that the stars will turn up in Galashiels for a fitting, instead just sending their measurements.

The film, set for release next year, tells the story of a group of art experts – called the Monuments Men – chosen by the US government, who risked their lives scouring Europe to retrieve artwork stolen by the Nazis.

Co-written and directed by Clooney, the movie is based on the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M Edsel.

It follows the 11-month period between D-Day and VE Day, during which the group worked behind enemy lines and were often unarmed.

Clooney and Craig head a star-studded cast, which includes Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and French actor Jean Dujardin, who won an Oscar for his role in The Artist.

A-2 jackets have a cult following around the world, with aficionados collecting the many styles and fittings that were produced over the decades.

Aero specialises in producing jackets using pre-war tanning processes and types of leathers such as horsehide that give them a distinctive vintage character and colour.

Craig is already known to be a fan of Aero, along with House star Hugh Laurie and rapper Puff Daddy.

Mike Sicoli, co-founder of FilmJackets.com, a website devoted to cataloguing and sourcing jackets worn by actors in movies, said: “Film, and the wardrobe that popular and even unpopular actors wear, has been a huge influence on fashion as far back as James Dean’s red windbreaker in Rebel Without A Cause, and Marlon Brando’s leather motorcycle jacket in The Wild One.”

FilmJacket.com co-founder Rick Theriault, agreed: “The overall look of a character speaks to people more than anything, and they want to emulate part, or all, of the character’s wardrobe and assimilate it into their own style. Even if a film does poorly, it is not uncommon for people to ask about a jacket that a character wore.”

Mr Theriault said that to benefit financially from the appearance of their designs in a film, the company has to market the jacket properly.

But Mr Calder said while being associated with Hollywood A-listers was not bad for business, he was loath to advertise on the back of it.

As previously reported, is "The Monuments Men" of the art looted by the Nazis and based on the eponymous book by U.S. author Robert M. Edsel.

Expects a stampede - despite the freezing cold. "I think that a movie with this director will elicit some people behind the stove," says Johanna Ragwitz, head of the agency with the programmatic name "film faces." She remembers well to the two-day audition for a bit player in the fall of 2008, when about 6,000 men and women flocked onto backlot, a mini role in Quentin Tarantino - also shot in Babelsberg - Nazi hunter satire "Inglourious Basterds" to get hold of: "The was a great deal. "

Candidates queue up, fill out a extras bow with dress size, phone number and email address, then two to three pictures are taken - that" At about 12 clock over 1,000 interested parties were made approaches.

Hopes to meet the Oscar winner ("Syriana"), today in the media center, you have to make no way.

"The casting is disputed only by, Film Faces'" says Studio Babelsberg spokesman Eike Wolf and instead all interested parties a good tip on the way: "I would certainly recommend, throw over a thick winter jacket. Who comes to casting, is determined for a time outside in the queue "And this snake can be long, very long - like the lovable extras application for Jackie Chan's Action Travel". "In 80 days around the world. At that time, around 2003, to film Crazy shoved to the station media city.

The bistro "Tasty" on the studio lot remembered meanwhile still good to the mega-casting for "Inglourious Basterds": 2008 Director Berserker Tarantino made (currently with the neo-Western "Django Unchained" in theaters) also by "movie faces" extras looking. Thousands came and saw itself on the side of Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger and Christoph Waltz. "The snake was determined a mile long," says Veiko Narten. The "Tasty" host shocks now "nothing". Nart and his team for the expected onslaught today well prepared. From 9 clock can be supplied with a warming cup of coffee (no, that casting is not sponsored by the precious coffee brand Nespresso, whose Clooney advertising face for years) or sandwiches, stews, chili con carne, or nibble Strammer Max.
